  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Word Origins 50. The word origin today is "casino. "

  • Okay. Let's take a look at the note. The origin

  • of the word casino comes directly from Italian. In Italian, the word means little

  • house or sometimes it can be used to mean country house in Italian. Casa means

  • a house and when a word ends in the letters INO or Ino usually refers to

  • the diminutive. Which means small. For example , a lot of people might know

  • "Bambino. " Bambino means a little baby diminutive.

  • So anytime you have the INO sort of ending it could mean that it's smaller

  • Something is smaller or less. It's a diminutive. Okay.

  • So it is a diminutive form meaning small, so small house. Okay let's continue. The

  • Italians often went to their country house to hang out with friends and enjoy

  • music dancing and gamboling. Okay. Eventually the name stuck for a gambling

  • house. The first European casino was in Venice, Italy which helped in

  • establishing the name casino for gambling houses. So I guess Italy was one

  • of the first ...was the first one to really have a real casino in it. And that's the

  • it got to be known as though like the little house. So that's how the name came

  • about and that stuck ever since that. Anyway, I hope you got it.

  • I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye bye.
